as well as globally related it to shale gas. although shale gas really made united states self-sufficient in term of gas supply, so we're not considering the united states as a destination for selling our lng to united states. but there is also the direction of flows from the united states to europe our main market and to asia, as well. but at the moment, what's happening, it looks like that shil gas boom will create a lot of problems for the domestic producers in the united states because prices in united states are not sustainable, are not able to support investment cycle in the . >> and just china, the plan is for china to be a long term partner for russian oil and gas production. much i guess will depend on on getting the pipeline built and developed. where are we in that process? >> it's not so much the problem of a pipeline. it's a problem that we still are not able to negotiate a price that meets our expectations. the problem comes from the fact that in china, prices for natural gas are regulated. the current price levels are well below our expectations. you mentioned sh

. and can the united states dodge a financial cliff in we'll speak to a guest who has clear ideas of what needs to be done. first it's about the jobs report, unemployment report due out at 8:30 eastern. economists think yet another month of modest job growth, but not enough to make a dent in unemployment. dow jones forecasted nonfarm payrolls for an increase of 118,000, it was 96,000 in august. unemployment seen holding at 8.1%, it's judgmented that job gains of 150,000 or more are needed to bring down unemployment. how long will they be doing this for then and what is today's number -- where does today's number come in that scheme of things? >> how long are they going to be doing -- to answer that pre-supposes that i believe quantitative easing is going to improve the employment picture. and i'm not at all sure about that. and it's interesting that if you ride the fed minutes from that meeting, that there were quite a few fed governors who weren't so sure about that either. >> i'm sure it has no indirect control, but that's not the point. they said they're going to do it until the unempl

. and of course the united states is seeing a resurgence in its own domestic production of oil and gas. which isn't to say canada will be shut out, but the u.s. will become more self-sufficient. canada will see booming production of oil and gas itself in years to come and asia which is the biggest growing market is an obvious place. and to have a partnership with a company like petromas would appear to make sense. one wonders if there's domestic politics -- >> they blocked the lse bid. >> but you can understand that because these are strategic reserves and once they're gone, they're gone. >> maybe slightly more take strategic than degnome. >> it's very intriguing how little we've seen protectionism rearing its head through these difficult times. if you said what is the next potential shoe to drop, it would be a resurgence of protectionist policies. >> james, you stay, neal, you go. thank you very much and have a good week. we understand that european parliament committee is advising to oppose the appointment to the ecb board. asked to propose a different ecb board candidate. the reason to say we
, but it's up to the united states to decide exactly what they announced and when. i was encouraged by the statements of both president obama and governor mitt romney, that iran, that they will do everything and they will consider everything, including if necessary the military option in order to prevent a nuclear possession of iran. >> now, of course, we also spoke at length about the israeli economy, especially in light of these geopolitical tensions, and the finance minister reiterated the projected growth for 2013 is at 3%. unemployment is at 6.9%. of course, he's also saying that direct investment in israel is up 40% over precrisis levels. of course, most of that trade between the u.s. and europe and israel. but they've also been looking to china and india over the last three years for an increase in international trade. so again the israeli finance minister in an exclusive interview with cnbc reiterateding his support, but also keeping that possibility open for military action over teheran's nuclear ambitions. ross? >> okay, hadleigh, thanks for that. we did nudge down from an
of all, is this a statement about investment opportunities in the wireless market in the united states and taking on the big two, if you will, or is this more of a statement about how much money there is sitting in japan trying to find a home someplace. you know, why is softbank doing this deal, who will finance a $13 billion deal. that's as interesting as the deal itself to be honest with you. >> giles is nodding his head. but you're suggesting there is so much cash sitting around, eventually it is finally coming on out. investors have got fed up with earning nothing. >> absolutely. absolutely. somebody will finance this deal. softbank doesn't have the money in the bank. so, again, it's a $13 billion deal. this is an enormous deal. and i think the implications globally of japan having an enormous amount of cash on on the sidelines and the united states and europe, there are a number of companies that are desperate for cash, large companies. makes for a very interesting another come up elf years. >> this would be the largest ever takeover by a japanese company or the u.s. one. do you t

perhaps to sort of offset what you're talking about in. >> in the united states at this point, residential real estate is dirt cheap and for small investo investors, it's a great place to go. especially when government policy is that we'll lend you 30 year money at 3.5%. and when you look at the average house price inflation in the united states over long periods of time, it's around the same level nominal gdp, so probably a pretty good bet there. art, collectibles, i think continue to be an interesting place for the wealthy to go. and then for people who have no other outlet, especially people like central banks, pension funds, even individuals, gold or silver, precious metals are a good hedge. >> you can get your pizza yield, but people do have to live off something and that's the problem. at some point what is going to be that income stream. >> i think the reality is under financial reflation -- or, sorry, under financial repression. as the fed keeps pushing long rates down, central banks keep trying to push rates down for sovereign, we're starting to see other fixed income classes foll

to go into the m&a kind of feel especially in advance countries including the united states and europe. what's your take on the opportunities for china companies, perhaps not the high profile, but even in the mid cap and lower cap kind of companies, would there be opportunities for chinese companies, as well? because it needs to export it capital and rather than locking everything into the u.s. treasuries. >> definitely even for chinese company, they'll be looking very closely at some of the many opportunities within the u.s. market. and not just u.s. in the european market, there are some m&a opportunities moving forward. so it will be interesting because you're not talking about just service providers. you could be looking at players at other icd value chain lay pl. so we do expect some moves overseas. >> a.j., thanks very much for your thoughts. ross, i was just going to say that the deal also comes at a time when at&t and verizon may have been getting pricing you power with customers and the question is whether sprint will now spoil the party. in any deal, ebc board of governor gov
, from a foreign country if the united states is weak or a domestic security play if the rest of the world is stinking up the joint. and last but absolutely not least, you need some gold. because gold has a special property. one that makes the metal precious to any diversity. consider it your insurance to economic or geopolitical chaos. consider it insurance against uncertainty or inflation. all things that cause most stocks to decline. i like to think of the gold position as contained of stock insurance. would you own a home without homeowner's insurance? a car without car insurance? you shouldn't invest without gold exposure. because gold pays off when everybody else fails. it's also been about the best-performing asset year after year for the last decade. wracking up gains at a period where every other asset class has truly disappointed. it's not about the upside, it can be considerable. it's about minimizing risk to the downside. there will be a whole host of sectors poised to outperform gold. none that works like the insurance policy that gold does. it's insurance against

. the united states -- that 6-foot put retains the trophy. in the final match, this missed effort pby tiger woods and a sporting concession, europe gained the half point needed to win the cup outright. so no doubt it was a late night for european fans in chicago. and an early morning for american golf fans. jack, i know you were at medinah on saturday. were there a few kind of laggards golf european golf laggards running around this morning when you came into work? >> they were last night, i don't know about this morning. it was about 3:30 when i came in this morning. but 17 and 18 at medinah can turn any golf pro into a 25 handicap. i think we saw that yesterday. >> it was amazing. just two key gains i thought was the rose pi pivotal. >> i think the americans at that point pulled defeat out of the jaws of victory, but the europeans did play very well. >> talking about pulling -- we'll get on to the agenda in a second. we start the fourth quarter, the dow up 4%, nasdaq up 6, s&p 500 up a 5.7. where do people go now? >> i think we have to realize may is the only month where the market was lo
president of the united states is, the market will adapt accordingly. but right now, the difficult thing is we don't know who that will be. and again, you have this issue with the fiscal cliff hanging over everybody, as well. that's why i think if you can push the market a little bit higher here, get it up another 3%, 4%, that's a great opportunity for people watching the show to pair back their equity exposure a little bit, take some chips off the table. and for people a little bit more aggressive. even play from the short side. >> all right, you'll stick around for a little bit more, get your view on foreign markets from the perspective of you in the u.s. meanwhile, other stories today, new york attorney general eric snyderman is suing jpmorgan over mortgage backed securities sold by bear stearns. jpmorgan bought bear when it collapsed in 2008. it alleges bear didn't ensure the quality of the loans it sold in 2006 and 2007. investors lost around $22 billion and more than 1 oof t00e securities. jpmorgan stock in the u.s. closing up 1.2%. >>> speaking to maria bartiromo, oracle says cust
will be looking at more m&a in the united states? >> yes, i think they already are. this is obviously one of the beggar deals to come along. and i think share hold cholder n is quite important because companies have to believe shareholders are willing to tolerate these kind of acquisitions. so if they don't deliver on the results they promised, that will make it harder for other companies to follow. >> peter, thanks for that. our apologies obviously for the not perfect sound. >> here's more proof of the revived appetite corporate japan appears to have for american assets. japanese parent company of 7-eleven stores says it's picked up the gasoline stands and 67 convenience stores in pennsylvania and ohio from easy energy usa. they also bought 58 handy mart stores. no price tag given for either deal. turning to banks, citigroup reports results at 8:00 a.m. eastern. forecast to earn 96 cents a share on revenues just shy of $19 billion. citi will also take a $5 billion charge related to it sale in morgan stanley smith barney. analysts say the challenge is to maintain growth in emerging market
b across into united states and japan, they're asking themselves was there a good investment to make by softbank in sprint nextel and i think in china, the same thing is happening. our company is very much involved in these foreign invegsmentes in china and many of these foreign invested joint ventures are co-invested by large private equity funds which are operating on the same scale of business as the biggest international pe group. so bottom line, this number is not going to be very meaningful and fewer and fewer people are really paying a whole lot of attention to it. it does have one component that is significant. it's a confidence measure of some sort. >> certainly there's always degree to which the currency plays in here or at least it will respond to cross border flows. we're seeing the renminbi strengthening sort of day to day. and so how do you square that? >> again, the renminbi is at the moment no longer one currency. you have the cny part of it which is the on shore trade and the cnh component which is the offshore traded renminbi. right now the two are pretty much in li
